Santa Has Arrived (ok, not really!)


Hi Peeps....

I've got another C********s card to share today...  and one I just adored colouring!  It's Bellarific Friday (of course), and this little guy is one of the recent release from Stamping Bella - he's from The Littles, and is called 'Santa Has Arrived' (but not quite yet huh??)

We had a sketch to follow this week - and I think I came close..

No automatic alt text available.

I created a night sky (which nearly matched my paper) with Distress Inks, sponging Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Salty Ocean...  before sprinkling with water, then using my Sharpie White Pen for the snow.  I fussy cut Santa and his chimney, but there is a fabulous cut-it-out die available for him.
